Com­poser: Rach­mani­noff

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

In that fi­nal hour be­fore a con­cert I in­vari­ably try to find time to clear my mind, sit in a com­fort­able chair in the dress­ing room and lis­ten to re­lax­ing mu­sic. A fre­quent choice is Rach­mani­noff’s Pi­ano Con­certo No 2, un­doubt­edly his finest. Only two years ago, I heard it per­formed live for the first time and it was thrilling. We were in Nashville to per­form three con­certs with the Nashville Symphony and, as luck would have it, the fol­low­ing night they were per­form­ing this very con­certo and they in­vited me along. Re­cently, I heard a record­ing fea­tur­ing soloist Kha­tia Bu­ni­atishvili, a young FrenchGe­or­gian con­cert pi­anist, and her in­ter­pre­ta­tion is spe­cial.
